Ercolano And Cantine Del Vesuvio
The smaller sister of Pompeii, is a destination for lovers of beauty. Visitors to the ancient city have the rare opportunity to see patrician villas perfectly intact. A miracle of conservation in which even the wood and strings of the 2000 year old city are exhibited, along with the stunning brick work, mosaics and frescoes. The detail with which Herculaneum has been preserved is remarkable considering the violence of the 500 ° C volcanic flows, which devastated the city.
Wine tasting fruit of the Vesuvius
After wandering through the culturally rich ruins of Herculaneum all morning, it's time for a well-deserved moment of relaxation. Retire to the vineyard that produces the famous Lacryma Christi vintage, literally "Lacrima di Cristo", and boasts a magnificent view of Mount Vesuvius.

We offer a driver who can provide transportation and advice gained through years of experience to make this your memorable tour! Through the very panoramic SS. 145 which runs alongside Castellammare di Stabia, we discover the excavations of Herculaneum, which like Pompeii, was destroyed during the eruption of 79 AD Surrounded by the villas of the Roman patricians during the eruption it was submerged by a torrent of mud and lava. The mass of debris that covered Herculaneum subsequently solidified into tuff. This process of solidification has kept intact objects and wooden parts, which are still visible and well preserved today. However, much of the ancient city is still buried under the modern Herculaneum, and excavation work is still in progress to discover what still lies beneath the modern city. Considered
